From 27 February to 5 July 2020 the Musée Marmottan Monet is putting on a unique exhibition titled “Cezanne et les Maîtres. Rêve d’Italie” (Cezanne and the Master Painters. A dream of Italy) in which, for the first time, the painter’s works will be presented alongside pictures by the great Italian masters from the 16th, 17th, 18th and 19th centuries. A remarkable selection of canvases by the forerunner of Cubism, including an iconic Montagne Sainte-Victoire, and the essential Pastorale and still lifes, will thus face a rare ensemble of paintings by the likes of Tintoretto, El Greco, Ribera, Giordano, Poussin and, in the modern era, Carrà, Sironi, Soffici and Pirandello, and of course Boccioni and Morandi.
For over 30 years, with a diverse practice which ranges from sculpture and installations to paintings and drawings, the British Turner prize winning artist Keith Tyson has probed, dissected, explored, and questioned reality. Not fixed to one artistic style, Tyson’s mission is to challenge himself and the audience, whilst working with diverse materials – paint, clay, metal, resin – to question our knowledge of the world we perceive as real, and art’s role in representing it as such. For his second opus of The Unexpected Dialogues the Marmottan museum invites him to come and talk with two works from his collections : The Pont de l’Europe, Gare Saint-Lazare and Arm of the Seine near Giverny at Sunrise of Claude Monet. An exhibition to discover from October 22, 2019.
